Anything happening??

 

Pulled a hammy trying to get through deep snow over the weekend...

 

Might take a sled ride out to a farm this weekend just to break some trails in.  I think the deer could use a little help.  My SIL found a young buck dead in his bed last weekend; not even completely frozen yet.  His antlers were dropped.

 

I plan to stay out of any bedding areas for at least a month, or till this snow gets more manageable; whichever comes second.  Most deer are probably pretty stressed right now and spooking them around looking for head gear doesn’t seem like it would be in their best interest, IMHO.  We do have a 12 we wanna find out there when conditions get better for everyone.

2 tries and 0 results.  Nice to be out anyway and looking around a new place.  Found a dead doe today with foundered hooves.  That was a first.

My pup managed to score again.... Not bone but her first deer tick!! I hate those tiny critters. Everything but south slopes are still thick with snow cover. I hit a cedar covered island near Hackensack today, not as much sign as a was hoping for.

ABSOLUTELY!! Thank you ....That's exactly why I hate them!! There isn't enuf antlers or morels in the world worth suffering from Lymes Disease for. I always wear repellant soaked white pants and shirts with rubber boots in the spring when collecting sheds or morels. 

 

Is there any fresh antlers being found out there, now that the majority of the snow is gone?? Wanderer, it's your turn!

I like the foggy days like we had this morning for looking, makes it harder to see the "STAY OUT" signs that litter my good spots😉

I saw this one way before the pup would have scented it, at my 2nd spot today. First spot was destroyed from the recent thinning of the pine trees. My first typical 6!0416191147f.thumb.jpg.9c65dbdf45310d89413ec933577452ee.jpg

Unfortunately it's wasn't anywhere close to an area that I hunt and there was a ladder stand in every other tree.

Nice!

 

Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.

    • Nice win last night with Kepler & Schoop doing the heavy lifting. Some tough but good work done by the bullpen too.  Yanks beat the Indians as well.👍
    • Nice bag of fish there Duff!   I was out for about an hour and a half last night and managed 9 bites; 4 bass and 5 pike.  Only 1 bass and 2 pike made it to the boat though.  Horrible conversion rate.   The bite is still on reaction baits for me.  Buzz bait, spinner bait, rattle bait, jerk bait.  Nothing on plastic which is usually my go to.  It’s been weird with all the short bites lately.  I’ve had very few fish that have crushed the bait.  Earlier I figured it was a food thing - they were just too well fed.  I’m hoping that’s still the case cuz those bass have DEEP bodies on ‘em.  I’m starting to wonder though if the pressure is getting to them.  We’ve had a noticeable uptick of new fisher people in the area.   The side action: Had a couple turkeys glide by and up to their roost next to me about 10 minutes after watching a nice 10 pointer stand up out his bed.  Yawn, stretch, [PoorWordUsage] and watch me fish for bit before wandering off to feed.  Bad photo but better n nuthin.  
    • I like the walnut one.   Crack the shell, add some water, wrap it in a wet paper towel, it germinates, keep in a sunny area, and then they show these magic walnuts.     I think they left out about 15 years.  LOL.
    • Finally, had a decent day.......or shall I say hour. Last week was a bust, one 3ish fish in 4 hours. I target bigger fish, so just avoiding the skunk can be challenging some days.   Just let out the hound and had a smirk appear on my face, I see It's full moon out there. That always helps. Got out on the water at 3:00 today, missed 3 out of 4 bites right away.   Changed up my retrieval speed and cadence and it was on..........for a few minutes. All my action occurred within the first hour of my four hour stint.   4 cookie cutter bass....... 3.87 lb 3.94 lb 4.12 lb 4.16 lb   Spot on spot, the two 4's were back to back. I'm running cranks.   Good luck out there. The Fattening is coming up soon.    
    • Thanks guys I will look into them.
